When Does it Start to Glow? Understanding Environmental Radioactivity and How to Manage Potential Risks
Wednesday, May 29th at 1:30pm EST • Presented by: Nathan Epler, Ph.D., P.G. and Adam Love, Ph.D.
While we are constantly surrounded by radiation, environmental radiation hazards are much less common. Thus, when a hazard arises, it typically elicits a strong community response and requires unique technical experience to characterize and mitigate. This webinar will be a primer to improve your understanding and fluency of the unique issues related to radioactivity hazards. Even though radioactive hazards are encountered infrequently, it is still important to have a basic knowledge of the topic to ensure significant issues are identified, and the correct steps are taken early on to avoid worsening conditions.
